I maybe a little late to the party on this subject, but i`ve discovered the factory menu!!
I`m really annoyed its taken me 2 years to find it!!! I had presumed i didnt have access to the factory menu, because i had asked Hans a bunch of times years ago, if there was a way to access the advanced hidden color factory menu, to which he didnt seem to understand the question, and just told me the normal brightness and contrast, saturation method which is self explanatory on the remote. wow i`m annoyed. It was only today whilst revisiting my old youtube clips of my 1st tests of the x1000, i saw the link to that swedish/ norway guys video where he opens it up, and there in the comments he says, press 1234!!! At this point i`m thinking what!!?? really??! no way he must be talking about the later model, but NO this fricking projector the orginal X1000 has a factory menu. I do remember someone has asked me to hold menu and try various combos of buttons but had no idea it would be fricking 1234
Anyways there not that many options here than the later models but however the options that peak my interest is RGB and the RGB Offset >? now i`m no techie, but does this mean i can adjust the white balance and get rid of this bluish effect ive put up with for the last 2 years or what!
Right now i have a under utilized videoeq pro and a calman color meter. Now i dont want to get my hopes up but according to this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1459179/do-rgb-gains-and-offsets-affect-gamma-or-white-balance
offsets have something to do with white balance?
That link talks about offsets and gains, however the factory menu color temp setting doesnt list gains, right now the setting listed is as follows:
R Offset 133
G Offset 125
B Offset 128
i am a little apprehensive about fiddling with the settings, i would have to find some earlier posts where i think some owners suggested some settings,
maybe its something or maybe its nothing, but aw man would i like to wrap my hands round hans`` throat for not telling me or avoiding the question!!!
For me on the early x1000 the factory menu lists the following limited options>>
ADC Adjust (which is greyed out)
Pic mode (which is already on the main remote) (nothing new)
Color temp (which has the RGB and offsets)
Non Linear (already on remote, i.e brightness etc) (nothing new)
Other Option (which has stuff to do with VGA max, Hi def on,gain distance, delay reduce, auto kpki,kp1,ki1,kp2,ki2, cr lock thr, cr thr, and over mod) (non of these i know anything about)
perhaps the owners of the later models see nothing of interest here, but for me this is a fricking revelation! LOL
